New speeding penalties from 1 Nov 2018

Submitted by Rickjr on Sun, 04/11/2018 - 5:46pm

From VicRoads website - 1st November 2018


Dangerous drivers and those who employ them now face tough new penalties.

From today anyone caught exceeding the speed limit by 25 km/h or more but less than 35 km/h will lose their licence for 3 months. 

The same penalty will apply for anyone who exceeds the speed limit by 20km/h or more but less than 25 km/h in a 110 km/h zone. 

Previously motorists caught for those speeding offences would lose their licence for one month. Demerit points will no longer be accrued for all excessive speed offences.

Mid week ride - Wednesday 13th December

Submitted by Rickjr on Thu, 07/12/2017 - 3:15pm

My weekends have been busy lately and thinking of a mid week ride next Wednesday - 13th December.

Initial thoughts are Dandenong to Sorrento, catch the ferry to Queenslciff and ride along the Great Oean rd (lunch at Lorne)  before coming back home via Skenes Creek, Forrest and Winchelsea. 

Any takers? - happy to consider a different ride location - just message me.
